can i remove the egt and air plate on 602

i am fairly new to newer emission gunked motors of the 90s and today, but i was wondering if i could remove the egt and air flap just and put block off plates in? would this hurt performance at all ? or will the computer get all screwy? i have a 92 2.5 turbo 300d . i realize i would have to plug the vacumn lines going to these 2 devices. any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks again

you mean EGR?

yes. you can. I forget if this year has a computer for emissions...

but you want the flap in the air filter housing always open. (ie.. complete removal of the plate / flap)

No. On the '92, the computer controls boost, and if there's no EGR, I believe no boost.

Do a search of "vacuum wastegate" and you should find several threads on the subject.

EGT = Exhaust Gas Temperature, AKA: Pyrometer gauge. You want that!
